she has defeated scott brown, the republican. you may recall that brown won the seat of ted kennedy in 2010 and has stood for reelection now and has been defeated by elizabeth warren. this is a pickup for the democrats. republicans were hoping to win four more seats than they started with to take control of the senate chamber but now the democrats have picked up one more seat than they had at the beginning of the evening. byron pitts is following the senate races for us. byron? >> scott, this was the most closely watched senate race of the season and the second most expensive with virginia. with this pickup for democrats in the senate the window isn't closed yet for republicans but the shades come down. in massachusetts, the senate seat there goes to democrat elizabeth warren. she defeats moderate republican senator scott brown. this was always going to be a tough race for brown because of the way voters break down in massachusetts. 52% of voters in massachusetts say they're independent. 36% say they're democrats. and just 12%. a small number, say they're republicans. because of tha
punch for lot of people who ran the mitt romney campaign. a lot of them were working on the scott brown campaign because the care for massachusetts. it was their job to elect brown. it was always fun to be a tough race. i think both sides, both ran related campaigns. sometimes you raise a lot of money and run good campaigns and get the politics right, you still lose. >> cromie's top of advisers and pollsters, working for him. there has been some second- guessing among republicans. there were -- you said there was -- did he draw his map too small to begin with? especially given some of that outside money that was available? >> m. e. say about elizabeth warren's win. massachusetts has more democratic registration and that was trending that way. let me say that elizabeth warner will be -- elizabeth warren will be a powerhouse. she is going to be of message -- off message and that will be a real opportunity for republicans next year. on the battleground map, it was a great idea for mitt romney to expand the map of pennsylvania and minnesota. they saw the polls -- could they have done it ear
>> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch up to the new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 7% of hispanics -- 70% of hispanics. young voters. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how about mitt romney? how did he try to reach out to these people? >> i was talking earlier about the fundamental assumptions underlying the campaign. romney's campaign believes the economy was basically going to be the single biggest reason that would turn voters away from the president. there was an a
went out with a group of men who had given up their sunday, their cleveland browns game to go out and try to find some more votes for romney but the belief is that there are fewer than 2% in the final weekend before election day in ohio who had yet to make up their mind. one moment struck me in one suburb and neighborhood and there was a gentleman taking the groceries out of his car, his name was russ and the volunteers approached him and he said i haven't decided but i have enough material. i've been contacted by both campaigns. they left the driveway then i asked them where are you leaning? and he told me i'm leaning president obama. and it was interesting because he would fit the demographic we've seen romney doing better among white men, blue collar in some of these states, he's an electrician, a father but said he was leaning obama one word, bain and as you know the obama campaign really hammered mitt romney particularly in the state of ohio for months even before the debate on bain capital. this is a man who fit into a demographic with better numbers for romney across the bo
